Biography

Govinda is a kirtan singer based in Los Angeles. He is initiated in the sacred maha-mantra lineage and has been chanting since 1980.
Born in the Mississippi delta, home of the blues, his music has a definite "heart and soul" influence and the guitar is the instrument of choice of this multi-instrumentalist.

MIGHTY GOVINDA is a band that fuses the spiritual potency of mantra with western dance beats. The beats include House, Ska, Reggae and Rap, all designed to make an audience move. Song lyrics are in English and ancient sanskrit. This combination of danceable grooves, the power of mantra and English lyrics is what makes Mighty Govinda unique and sets the ensemble apart from other chanting groups.

(Maha-Mantra)
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare

In Our World Today, there are many ideologies
Fact of the matter is, we all just want to be happy, so let there be
1 People, 1 Nation, 1 World united at heart
1 People, 1 Prayer, 1 Religion, devotion to God!

(Maha-Mantra)
In Our World Today, there’s too much dogma
Extreme-ism on the left, hypocrisy on the right
Its time we drop our egos at the truth! So let there be
1 People, 1 Nation, 1 World united at heart
1 People, 1 Prayer, 1 Religion, devotion to God!

(Maha-Mantra)
In Our World Today, we’re fighting over land
Put down that gun, pick up a shovel
It’s time we plant some seeds and grow a planet of Love, let it be
1 People, 1 Nation, 1 World united at heart
1 People, 1 Prayer, 1 Religion, devotion to God!

(Maha-Mantra)
1 People, praying for 1 People
With just a little bit of understanding, we can get there
With just a little bit of respect, we can get there
Someday we’ll be happy, but first there must be peace

and before we get to peace, we got to serve our spiritual needs..
we can get there…yeah…1 People
On this whole earth place, it’s only one human race..1 People, we can get there
on this whole earth place, it’s only one human face…can we get there? 1 People
